Yes, folks, we are being herded toward communism. I can’t even call it the gentler version named socialism. With a few strokes of a pen Obama has effectively signed away our right to make a living outside of joining a union. Since the economy has tanked and jobs are scarce anyway, if you want to work you have to pay a union to do so. This directly affects my husband in the construction field. We knew it was coming, especially after starting our tax return with hubby having a total of 5 W2s for a one year period only to once again be in a position of no work. This is the worst I’ve ever seen it and my Dad and most of my brothers work the construction field, too, so I grew up in a blue collar world. It’s hard not to be resentful of some things out here in the construction world when you see illegal aliens riding around in brand new trucks, SUVs, and cars but it’s not all their fault. The companies hiring them over American workers are at fault, too.
But that’s neither here nor there at this point. Faced with the reality of the future, hubby, at the great age of 50 made a big decision to change careers. I won’t say what because I know big brother is listening and I hope to stave off his interference at least for a few years. I know at some point, that industry will fall just like the rest when the government realizes it’s oversight.
In the meantime, Pelosi is directly contradicting Obama on the worries about bipartisanship. He wants it; she doesn’t care. She has no fear of losing her seat in that great bastion of democracy: San Fransisco. If this is so, what’s the holdup? Pass the rape of the nation’s future already. With the presidential takeover of the census, one has to wonder if we’re looking at a larger version of Venezuela. It would make sense in view of Pelosi’s uncaring attitude about bipartisanship. If you become a dictatorship under the ruling party, what need is there for it?
Also, in the meantime, Barbara Boxer is fighting to turn our parental rights over to the United Nations. If I read the article right, it’s going to happen. The problem Boxer seems to have is that it’s not happening fast enough to suit her. Perhaps, it’s because some states are moving to counteract the federal consolidation of power against everything our Constitution stands for. Note that there are blue states among those listed. Should Boxer’s wish become a reality, it will effectively supercede all state laws across the nation on parental rights and children.
In other news, there is a lot of wrangling about whether Michael Phelps should be arrested. In a just world, following the rule of law, I’d say he probably should. However, this is not a just world. In a just world, if there is a move to arrest him, they had best follow it up with arrests of 95% of Obama’s cabinet and Obama himself who admitted to snorting coke among partaking of other drugs. When government is not subject to the laws that are imposed upon us, we have a problem.
What happens if there is too much dissendence over this federal takeover? Will we be marched to jail as political prisoners? Will we be euthanized in gas chambers? Think I’m overreacting? Perhaps so, in a sense, but I remind those who have even the slightest remembrance of history (being no historian myself), people then thought some were overreacting to Hitler as well.
Hitler did not become the monster he was overnight and he had plenty of help to enable him. Nor do I believe Obama himself is another Hitler. In fact, given his inability to do anything but sign executive orders rescinding past executive orders and talk, he’s still, to me, just an empty suit. There are, however, lots of strings attached to him and they are being pulled, guiding him in the direction the powers of D.C. want him to go. A puppet is ever at the command of the puppetmaster. Obama has many masters and it’s beginning to show only a few weeks into his administration. I can’t recall seeing any president fall so fast in the polls as this one has. I don’t believe even Carter fell this qucikly although I haven’t checked to see if that’s an accurate statement or not. While his numbers are still up with a majority approval rating, I don’t believe that rating is going to last much longer at the rate it’s falling.
We’re being sold bills of goods based on stated intents but the lie to the intent is written in the bills themselves; written in such a way that hardly anybody is going to take the time to read them. The handshake method of doing business hasn’t worked for a long time but for some reason we keep falling for that: “my word is my bond” philosophy. In spite of the fact that the majority of the people are against this bill the more they find out about it, it will pass.
I’m ashamed, not just of my fellow citizens, but myself as well. We allowed this to happen, caught up in the materialistic world of wants and wishes and not attending to real life. I’m ashamed of the legacy we are imposing on our children, those who are just beginning to live and those who have not yet been born. We have sold them into bongage in order to delay our own comeuppance.
I was discussing with a friend that I believe God doesn’t care anymore. He upbraided me about it but if He doesn’t, it’s not his fault. We have rejected him time and again and even God’s patience must be at an end. Yes, the Republicans are fighting… now… but when you see what’s happening it seems so too little, too late. Perhaps, it’s just our time to be in the valley to appreciate when God lifts us up to the mountain tops.
I hope He does still care with all my heart and prayers. If ever there was a time when I hope I am wrong, this is the time when I mean it more than I’ve ever meant it before. Whether its too little, too late or not we have to keep up the fight and keep struggling for the right to self-determination rather than a “one size fits all” world with disembodied overlords determining what is right or wrong, accordingly for their benefit rather than that of humanity. I’d rather go down fighting than meekly accept what looks to be the future.
Update: This reminds me of that old German poem. One wonders if the media is soon to experience buyers’ remorse considering how they decided this last election through how they covered the not only the sitting president but the presidential candidates for 2008.
